At Lings Primary we strive to ensure individual pupil’s needs are clearly identified and specific strategies, support and resources are out into place to support learning at all levels. Quality first teaching with instant interventions are used to support misconceptions and enhance learning on a daily basis. Teachers provide differentiated learning opportunities for all the children within our school and provide materials appropriate to children’s interests and abilities.  This ensures that all children have a full access to our school’s curriculum. This is a curriculum which supports and develops a child to be creative, agile and industrious regardless of their individual needs and where the school and staff endeavour to support and to develop children’s emotional, social and academic needs to the highest standards possible. Teaching assistants are deployed effectively in all classes to work with pupils, either in small groups or on a one-to-one basis. If a more specific support programme is required, interventions are planned with the teacher and Inclusion leader. The progress within this intervention is closely monitored in order to ensure pupil’s learning is on track. At times more specialised support programmes are required and we work closely with a range of professionals to support a variety of needs. These professionals include Educational Psychologists, Community Paediatricians, Speech therapists, Physiotherapists, Occupational therapists and specialised teachers in behaviour, learning difficulties and ASD.

The school follows the SEND Code of Practice and ensures assessments take place to support statutory assessments. Pupils on the SEND register and with Education Health Care Plans and High Needs Funding are supported closely within school to allow them to develop academically, emotionally and socially. The school supports the Local Offer and works closely with parents and carers of children and young people with special educational needs and disability, to ensure a range of specialist or targeted service providers are available.
